Find a legislative forum in your area

Do you care about clean water? Do you want to build the call for immediate action on climate? Do you want to win universal single payer healthcare for all? Do you want to join the movement to create vibrant rural communities in Iowa? One way to do that is by meeting with your elected officials, and communicating the need for a moratorium on factory farms, Iowa’s need to expand energy efficiency programs and put pressure on energy utilities to act on climate, our need to get profits out of healthcare. 

Forums are a great place for your voice to be heard and to raise your concerns with your elected officials.

Because clean water is one of our major issues, we’ve prepared a toolkit you can use to talk to your legislator about clean water and a factory farm moratorium. 

Check out the list below to see what forums are going to be near you.
